LA’s Art Angels, Jacquelin Napal-Comeau and Kat Emery, have made Miami their second home with the launch of their new gallery. Along with the opening of the Art Angels Miami gallery, these chic entrepreneurs will also showcase at CONTEXT Art Miami and will curate the lobby of the Nobu Hotel Miami / Eden Roc Hotel Miami.

Favorite thing about Art Basel Miami Beach?
It really feels like a place where ideas are formed, an incubator, if you like, for not only the art industry but also music and fashion. The people that attend Art Basel are at the forefront of their careers and the cutting edge of their industries and magic things happen when these minds meet in a such a creative environment.

What are you most looking forward to at this year’s fair?
Discovering new artists and artworks and seeing all of the artists, art consultants and collectors we work with in one place.

Hottest party to attend?
Art Angels Miami Grand Opening on December 6, of course!

Favorite hangout?
1 Hotel South Beach and the Eden Roc and Nobu Hotel Miami Beach, where we have curated the artwork in the lobby so it makes us feel at home. Also Komodo—since Komodo opened we have been starting Basel week there as a tradition. We eat far too much food, as its usually the only real chance we get to sit down, eat and enjoy our dinner before the madness starts!

Style tips for Art Basel?
The Art Angels like to make a statement at the fairs! CONTEXT is our fashion runway and you will see nothing less than elegant and eye-catching ensembles. Stay tuned!

How will you unwind after Art Basel?
Unwind? Haha, what’s that? We’re just getting started!
